There are a number of exciting package updates for the openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling-release Linux distribution.

The recently-released Wayland 1.12 has landed in openSUSE Tumbleweed, but as far as I know the GNOME or KDE editions of Tumbleweed are yet to use Wayland by default.

The latest openSUSE Tumbleweed also has Qt 5.7, LibreOffice, Digikam 5.2.0, and FreeType 2.7. The FreeType 2.7 update is also exciting for its font rendering improvements.

The Linux 4.8 kernel is also currently being staged for Tumbleweed.
